6:39pm
regulators and the justice department and that could take months. if approved, the combined airline will fly under the name american and both carriers say points earned on either carrier will be cross honored. today is the day to celebrate love, right? coming up how some bay area businesses are cashing in on the contempt of valentine's day. >> judging by traffic trying to get on the bay bridge, san francisco is the be for valentine's day evening. 70 degrees today for many of you but find out which day in my forecast we'll struggle to make it into the 50s. that's coming up. a former as player takes a [ indiscernible ] out of the red sox clubhouse. and a key pitcher gone for how long coming up.

san jose 63. santa rosa 58. concord 63. even if you doesn't like valentine's day, i have some good news for you. earth is not going to get pummeled by a large asteroid tomorrow. this is an animation of how close -- watch -- closer closer really close -- oh!! just missed that one. 17,000 miles. that's how close an asteroid the size of a swimming pool -- there's an animation of it -- will be coming to earth. that sounds like a long distance away and it kind of is but here's the deal. our weather satellites that give your our pictures that we show you on our broadcast here are 22,000 miles away. this asteroid will be closer. a miss is a miss. we had a miss on kpix 5 high- def doppler radar because we have nothing on it. we will see that change next week. but all the way through the holiday weekend we'll be mainly dry. couple of upper 30s out there tonight. you will drop down to 38 in santa rosa and fairfield. 39 for livermore and oakland 45, redwood city tomorrow morning down to 42. big ridge of high pressure it is drying now all the way up
6:47pm
through british columbia. this ridge of high pressure inching closer to us. this will kind of be the peak of its strength today and tomorrow and when that happens and it gets closer to us winds always go clockwise around high pressure so it depends where we are relative to. right now with it next to us we are getting winds out of the northeast. a critical change because the wind is coming off land that got us from 60 yesterday to 70 today. this holds tomorrow. this holds through saturday. so two more warm days with highs around 70 degrees. by sun, same ridge of high pressure, by sunday, same strength, different placement. now it's down to our south as it moves away. now watch the arrows, the wind coming from the ocean. the onshore flow, ocean temperature 52 degrees, so because the high moved we are going from 70 on saturday down to 60 by president's day and then after that, our front is going to get here and that means it will be cooler and wetter for next week big pattern change coming u sunday warning, monday cooler for
6:48pm

6:54pm

6:55pm
recognition and now he wants more hardware. >> assuming that this program, this team continues to do well, you know, it's going to be really more good news for not just for michael but for cal golf. >> teach your kids golf, reit? syracuse basketball coach jim boeheim has never been one to hold back when speaking to the media. last night after his team lost to uconn, the 68-year-old coach took out some frustrations on espn reporter andy capp. >> what is [ indiscernible ] comments? >> i'll answer anybody's question but yours because you're an idiot and really, a disloyal person. >> ouch. >> idiot? >> i have been on the receiving end of some salvos, you might have heard, but not to that extent. i mean, that was pretty bad. >> really bad. >> no apology. >> no. not from the coach. >> oh. >> speaking his mind. but it's a good soundbyte. we in the other side of the
